Quality Matters

Why Quality Rope Is Important?

For most people rope is not a part of their everyday experience, so a rope is a rope. Nothing can be further from the truth, however. Two ropes that look the same under a cursory glance could differ greatly in quality. A good quality rope will perform better, it will be consistent over time, and it will last longer – this is why quality rope is important. For example a rope that is used in rigging: a low quality rope will stretch and give under load so sails would never stay properly trimmed.

What To Look For In A Quality Rope

If you want a rope that is strong, reliable and durable you have to buy good quality, but how can you tell if what you are buying is up to standard. Here are some things you should look out for that highlight why quality rope is important:

Buying A Quality Rope

It is easy to buy a rope that looks good and has an attractive price tag. The problem is you will not usually discover problems until it is too late. Some example scenarios would include when out at sea, a strong wind or storm may cause low quality rope to break or snap causing loss of control of your vessel. You may even be pulling a cable through a pipe using a draw string, which has the potential to fail if the rope is of poor quality.
